The song Hey Ya (By : outkast) came out the summer we started dating. That same summer the power went out on this side of the country. (2003) and we danced in the dark in middle of a parking lot under the stars to it. (Seeing stars in the city is very difficult, lights are always on) Ever since that night is has been our song. IF it comes on we get up and dance. We love it!
We found an amazing version we will dance as our first dance.
Not as great a story as yours. 🙂 We were on a car trip and it came on the radio. Fiance (at the time) said that it made him think of us. He doesn’t normally notice song lyrics, so I was surprised. When it came time to pick a first dance song, he suggested that one and I was fine with it.
What a cute story! One of the first cd’s I burned for my fi was Declan O’Rourke’s–we listened to his music together at my apt, so I burned a copy to give to fi when we were at his place. We listened to his first album so much that it’s really the CD that we fell in love to. When we got engaged, it was very natural to pick “Galileo.”
This past december, we went to see Declan play live in NYC and we got to meet him! We told him that Galileo was going to be our first dance song and he congratulated us and took a picture with us! We might use this version of the song from that night we saw him in NYC:
My fiance and I were best friends for years before we started dating and there was a song that reminded him of me : an Untitled song by Pearl Jam (I’ve got a car . . . ) Anyway, it is about running away with a girl and how she understands him. It repeats the sentiment “without you I could never be alone” which is very sweet. ANYWAYS, he shared the song with me once we started dating and would sing it to me to help me sleep when I was stressed. He also sang it to me right before he proposed!It will be our first song even though it is very untraditional and no one will no the song or the words. It is only two minutes long and we will then play a traditional first song and invite everyone to join us on the floor for a dance.
Listened to your song – very cool. I was wary when you first said the name but it is a very cool rendition!
We got ours because my FH used it when he proposed 🙂 The song is “Come Live with Me” by Ray Charles. We were sitting on a bench in the park, and there weren’t many people around so we had his phone playing music for us to listen to (randomly, I thought, but he had made a carefully-chosen playlist :D). After the song played, he started it again and said “the fourth line is my favorite”….I remember looking at him like he was crazy and saying “really, do I have to count the lines?” and he said he’d tell me when to listen, lol. The fourth line is “be wife to me.” And that’s when he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him 🙂
After that, choosing our first dance song was by far our easiest planning decision!
First of all she is my favorite artist of all time… But I wanted to warm my hubby up with some songs I knew he wouldn’t like (hey, I really wanted this particular song!) and as soon as it came on and I was like “okay baby, listen to this one… it’s my favorite” he listened for a minute and said “okay thats it… I love it I love you and if its what you want I want it too” It was so cute the way he said it because it rhymed like he was writing his own song! anyways, so thats the song… I am very pleased with are mutual appreciation of Miranda! lol
We were just hanging around our house one night with an iTunes playlist going, and “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz came on. When it ended I thought to myself that it’s such a fun, sweet song, and I said to Fiance “Hey we should dance to that song.” Fiance said “okay.” LOL…that was it.
